Speaking to El Chiringuito TV, new Real Madrid captain Nacho Fernandez has claimed that he wishes to see the club sign both Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappe.

Nacho is now the new Real Madrid skipper following the exit of Karim Benzema. The Frenchman’s departure, coupled with those of Marco Asensio, Eden Hazard, and Mariano Diaz, has reduced the Merengues’ attack to bare-bones.

With only Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo Goes left as the senior attackers, Real Madrid are in the market for reinforcements to the frontline.

There has been a lot of talk about a move for Tottenham superstar and England captain Harry Kane for the upcoming summer.

However, at the same time, there have been reports claiming that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez might not go for the 29-year-old as it might affect his plan to sign Mbappe next year.

Nacho, though, does not see any such issues and wishes to sign Kane this year and move for Mbappe next year. In fact, the 33-year-old veteran went on to add that he would go for the latter’s transfer this summer itself if the decision was up to him.

“Harry Kane would fit in perfectly this summer and Mbappe would come in next summer,” Nacho said.

“Mbappe? If it were up to me, I would bring him this summer,” he added.

Highlighting the need to reinforce the frontline, the Real Madrid skipper claimed: “Important players have left us and we need goals.”

While Nacho might have hopes of seeing Mbappe arrive at the club this summer itself, club president Perez has already confirmed that a move for the French superstar will not take place this year.

In a recent interaction with a fan, the Real Madrid supremo confirmed that he wishes to sign Mbappe, but will not do so this year.

A fan asked Perez: “Florentino, will you sign Mbappé?” In response, Perez said“Yes. But not this year.”

What now remains to be seen is whether the Real Madrid president does indeed go after Kane’s signing or decides to call off the pursuit of the England captain so that it does not affect ‘Operation Mbappe’ for 2024.

Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.

Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.

Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.

Real Madrid impressed by Endrick

Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.

The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.

And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.

Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.

Endrick also learning new languages

Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.

The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
